It is only more complicated in that there is money involved. I am sure the arguments were used that it will provide jobs and revenue for the state. I hope many of you do realize that this is a result of the current lean of our elected officials, protect corporations and hinder environmental protections. This is what happens when you reduce funding to agencies like the EPA and leave it to the private sector to make (more like buy) the rules.Does anyone know more about this case and its history? Hard to understand this ruling. It appears to give Martin Marietta permission to destroy Blounts Creek. Is the case more complicated than this?
There was more than a yawn, there were a couple of organized protests, one being a boat rally. Bob had a music venue dedicated to the cause. Just apparently was not media worthy.yet another spawning area lost to greed. And the run off will shoot right down into Pamlico sound with all of the waste. I am surprised there wasn't more of an uprising around here. They raised hades for years over the OLF had sticker and banners and t shirts but hardly a yawn over this crap!!! The fancy houses still get their pretty river to look at there just wont be anything living in it!!
